We invite you to take a closer look at the Jaywalker experience and our Carbondale, CO community. Click here for our new video!

4 Feet

After a near record setting drought in January and most of February, most of us thought winter was over. Mother nature reminded us that winter was in fact alive and well by dropping four feet of snow on us in the last 7 days. Happy Shredding!

Recovery Ski Weekend

Jaywalker is honored to be welcoming the Phoenix Multisport group from the Denver area this weekend for another incredible weekend. Phoenix Multisport fosters a supportive, physically active community for individuals who are recovering from alcohol and substance abuse and those who choose to live a sober life. Through pursuits such as climbing, hiking, running, strength training, yoga, road/mountain biking, socials and other activities, we seek to help our members develop and maintain the emotional strength they need to stay sober. This will be the 6th year Jaywalker and Phoenix Multisport have engaged in some sober fun here in Aspen Colorado. Make plans to join us Saturday (Feb 28th) for skiing and dinner cooked by the famous Chef Brian Trom. We hope to see you there! For more information on Phoenix Multisport please Click Here!

Extreme Recovery

Jaywalkers newest employee and Chief Recovery Officer, Dirk Eldredge, joined the Jaywalker cross-fitters for his first experience with CrossFit. Although Dirk didn’t have the nicest things to say during the work out, he had a change of heart afterwards and officially signed up to work out four times a week at Sopris CrossFit. Dirk, you make a great addition to the team and we will see you at noon tomorrow! Donnie Hagenbart Admissions & Marketing Manager Jaywalker Lodge

Congrats John on 6

Jaywalker’s Director of Outreach Services & Alumni Relations, John Schneier, celebrated 6 years of sobriety yesterday. “To watch people recover, to see them help others, to watch loneliness vanish, to see a fellowship grow up about you, to have a host of friends – this is an experience you must not miss. We know you will not want to miss it.” Alcoholics Anonymous Pg 89 “You live this John. We love ya bud!” – Patrick Shaffer “Congratulations John. Your passion for recovery will continue to carry you to places you never could have imagined.” – Dirk Eldredge “John – congratulations! You’re a true inspiration for everyone here, in many ways.  Proud to call you not only my co-worker, but also my friend.

A Pine Creek Christmas

With a lot of us away from our families for the holidays, we got to spend Christmas with our family here at Jaywalker Lodge. Over 40 members of the Jaywalker community spent this wonderful Christmas nestled away in the Aspen Mountains enjoying a 5 star meal at the Pine Creek Cookhouse. It was another wonderful Christmas with great food and great company. We would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

What is Recovery?

The “What is Recovery?” project has been underway since August 2010 because there was currently no agreement about the definition of ‘recovery’ from alcohol and drug problems. The “What is Recovery” organization came up with this short list: Recovery is being honest with myself. Recovery is being able to enjoy life without drinking or using drugs like I used to. Recovery is living a life that contributes to society, to your family or to your betterment. Recovery is being the kind of person that people can count on. Recovery is about giving back. Recovery is striving to be consistent with my beliefs & values in activities that take up the major part of my time & energy.

Big Bus

For the last five years the Jaywalker Solutions men have been traveling to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota to do volunteer service work. Our men have worked on projects that include repairing trailers, constructing outhouses, harvesting food and building bunk beds. It is an experience that our men will remember for the rest of their lives. The experience has been so profound that Jaywalker decided to donate one of our vehicles as thanks for giving our men such an amazing experience.
